For the last couple of years, I’ve been a member of the executive committee of the MLA’s discussion group on literature and media (a group name that makes me a little bonkers). Each year, we sponsor one panel at the convention; this year’s call for papers is below. If you’re working on Second Life, please send Matt your proposal ASAP!
Session sponsored by the MLA’s Media and Literature Discussion Group
for the 2008 convention in San Francisco:
Second Lives: Reading and Writing Virtual Worlds
Second Life and other persistent virtual worlds, with preference to topics other than pedagogy. 1-page abstract and short vita by March 15 to Matthew Kirschenbaum, mgk AT umd DOT edu.
